This sweet little quilt is for a cousin’s new baby girl named Paisley.
And yes, I had to include a paisley fabric in the design. It was unavoidable. =)
The quilt is based on a traditional honey bee block, which is the large square surrounded by the pink petals on each corner. I’ve seen [...]
Friends of ours are having their first baby very soon. Josh & I were invited to a couples baby shower celebrating the little guy and this is what I made:
If you think the owl fabric looks familiar, I used another color way of the same print earlier this year in the quilt [...]
I made a comfort quilt for a friend who is going through breast cancer treatments right now. Kristy and her family have been very special to us; we’ve gotten to know them over the years from going to the same church.
I went with a modern look: large scale prints against white. It’s a [...]
“Cousin Sarah” as she’s known on this blog had a baby. A while ago. Her second little boy is named Levi and he’s as precious as could be. Not that I’ve ever met him in real life… but I feel like you get to know kids by looking at their photos and videos on Facebook. [...]
I made a quilt for my friend Amanda’s baby girl, Isabela. Amanda took our family pictures – oh yes! now that I’m blogging again, I’ll have to share them with you – and it wasn’t an easy job. She did a wonderful job! It’s just that our kids didn’t make it easy for her. It [...]

Jett’s quilt is now finished! I had the best of intentions of finishing this about 4 years ago. I made a nearly identical quilt for Jude in blue/white/black fabrics when he turned two years old. I wanted to have Jett’s quilt done when he turned two, that gave me a whole year to get [...]
I’m “behind” on getting quilts made for all of my friends and relatives who have had babies recently. I once was really good at having them ready by the time the kids were born (can you imagine?!). Now, I’m making a serious effort to get quilts to babies in their first year of life with [...]
The first nephew on my side of the family was born in mid-April. His name is Samuel Herman and – of course – he is as sweet as can be! We are really enjoying getting to know him and seeing how he’s changing in his first few months of life.
Here’s Sam and me.
I have been quilting a lot lately. This is actually one of SIX new quilts that I have to share with you!
This quilt is for baby Franklin who was born in November of last year. He is the first-born of friends Marc & Angela. Frank is an absolutely ADORABLE baby, and if that wasn’t [...]
